If you’re seeking an expert opinion on Brazilian music, take a heady walk over to East Village record store Tropicalia In Furs. Amongst wall-to-wall vinyl, you’ll find resident expert and owner Joel Stones, keeper of both impressive hairstyle and an extensive knowledge of Brazilian records, who can probably give you a detailed history of any item you pick up in the store.
Stones spoke to us at length in Chapter 50: Brazil about his story as a shoeshine guy-turned-store owner, and now in this FRANK Talk, he keeps it going by outlining the value of the one dollar record bins—the foundation of his Brazilian empire.
